Arrow: Stephen Amell Wants A Rematch Against The Reverse Flash
The DCTV Universe has amassed a huge number of antagonists across its four shows. But for Arrow's Stephen Amell, there are a few villains from his sister shows that he wishes he could go up against.
During a panel moderated by ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis at this weekend's Heroes and Villains Fan Fest Nashville, Amell revealed which The Flash villains he would like Oliver Queen to go toe-to-toe with - in one case, for a second time.
"King Shark would be fun." Amell explained. "No actually, I think that some iteration of Harrison Wells, the evil version would be pretty awesome to deal with. I like him. He's smart."
Oliver already faced off against Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanagh, back when Eobard had adopted Harrison Wells' identity) in the penultimate episode of The Flash's first season. Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin) had enlisted the help of Oliver - who had recently adopted his Al Sah-Him persona - and Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm (Robbie Amell), in one of the season's most noteworthy sequences.
While Eobard (later played by Matt Letscher) was essentially wiped out from the DCTV universe in this year's Legends of Tomorrow season finale, there's always a chance that he could return. And if he does, it's good to know that Barry or the Legends could call on Oliver to help.
Arrow's newest season debuts on a new night on Thursday, October 12th, at 9/8c on The CW.

UP NEXT: Arrow Season 6 Begins Production
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy).
Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his "family".
